Live Streaming Freaks

Updated on June 7, 2015

The world has gone completely insane over live streaming.

The explosion of live streaming to the world has gotten so big and anyone with a smartphone and unlimited data package can take on a news reporter's job live. On periscope for example there are people streaming live news even before it hits mainstream media. People stream live from anywhere doing absolutely anything any time any given day. Its free to tune in and mostly it's a platform to gain followers and an audience.

Anything goes and if you're a creative person, serious money can be made easily. Some people stream about their daily life, live art which they sell to their live audience, a commute to work, traffic jam, road rage etc. The strangest stream I have seen so far is people with nothing at all to talk about in pajamas with over 500 followers. However this is the safest streaming so far because you're streaming from the safety and comfort WiFI. But there is a dangerous streaming form mostly from your telephone service provider. Here since you're untethered, you're free to look for trouble. I am not sure whether it's an addiction or a habit or a phenomena, every live periscoper will get you talking to there followers. You can easily spot a periscoper by the way they hold there phones. And because of this fact its an accident waiting to happen. Soon we will start hearing people being run over or worse stamped by a donkey in developing worlds because, eyes glued on their smartphone streaming live. As i said before live streaming is a good thing and can happen from anywhere anytime. Sure if the medium is used well it has potential, I see a smart revolution as much as a damn one too. According to periscope, there are no rules as long as you have a Twitter account in this case 18 and above you're in.

As for the damn revolution, tune in on Late night Fridays around beer time and after party everyone is a superstar. To me, i think this is the most darkest part and misuse of the technology. From drunk drivers streaming back from a local drink hole, to heartbreaks and heart found unscripted live on periscope.
